Eric L Krakauer, MD, PhD
Dr. Krakauer received MD and PhD degrees from Yale University, trained in internal medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and completed fellowships in general internal medicine and in medical ethics at Harvard Medical School. At Massachusetts General Hospital, where he has practiced medicine and palliative care since 1997, he co-founded one of the first palliative care specialist training programs in the US and co-chaired the hospital’s clinical ethics committee. Since 2001, he has provided training and technical assistance for ministries of health, major hospitals, medical schools, and colleagues in low- and middle-income countries including Vietnam, Bangladesh, Rwanda, Malawi, Haiti, and the Russian Federation, to help integrate palliative care into healthcare systems and healthcare education. While serving as Medical Officer for Palliative Care at the headquarters of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Switzerland, he edited WHO manuals on integrating palliative care into primary health care, into pediatrics, and into responses to humanitarian crises. He also has served on the Lancet Commission on Global Access to Palliative Care and as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Medicine & Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where he helped to found one of the first academic departments of palliative care in the developing world.
- Visiting Associate Professor and Honorary Chair, Department of Palliative Care, University of Medicine & Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Dr. Krakauer led development of a method for estimating palliative care need in every country in the world for the Lancet Commission on Global Access to Palliative Care. His research also addresses ethical issues in palliative care and implementation of palliative care education and clinical services in low- and middle-income countries.
